The Shorecrest Community Association hosted an appreciation breakfast to thank all school volunteers for what they did to make the 2018-2019 school year so special. Grandparent Council Chair Donna Gaffney introduced the day’s guest speaker, International and New York Times Bestselling author and Shorecrest parent Ashley Rhodes-Courter and her topic "The importance of volunteerism and giving back." The incoming SCA Board for the 2019-2020 school year was voted on and announced.The volunteer breakfast is also when the annual recipient of the Janet Root Volunteer Service Award is announced each year. Last year’s winner, Corrie Stover ‘90, was there to present the 2018-19 award. Congratulations Anne Dowling and Heather O’Neill as this year’s Janet Root Volunteers of the Year!

A special thanks to Catherine Nelke and Heather Delrahim for their time on the class books project.
It's time for some spring cleaning! Help SCA give loved and gently-used children’s books new homes. SCA will start collecting used books on Monday for the annual Oldie Goldie book sale. Collection boxes will be in the hallways of Lower School and in the Middle School breezeway. Used books will be sold to ES and LS students for rock-bottom prices so they can find new literary favorites on the cheap. Proceeds benefit the Shorecrest library.
